I've just installed LO on Debian testing and fired it up and all seems
Great. You installed the beta of LibreOffice, I understand ;-)
( The abbreviation we want to use is LibO.)

A basic question though - OOo has a quick start option that sits in the
"task bar". Does LO have a similar functionality/ convenience?
I though it has, but cannot find it on my Ubuntu ;-)

So far the beta seems pretty good.

BTW - what's the LO equivalent of the command soffice ?
Just the same. Look in the installPath at the folder


Hey Cor

Thanks for the correction about the abbreviation - LibO it is then :-)

Perhaps the quickstarter is something that is on the way?  It does make
it so much more convenient.  In the interim I have added the LibO icon
to a launch menu drawer I use to facilitate ease of use.

Thanks for the path to soffice

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04. When I first installed LibO, I saw the
Quickstarter in the upper panel (system tray), on the right-hand side
near the other notifications and the shutdown icon. Now it's not there
any more! And yes, I do have it enabled in Tools>  Options>  Memory.



With OOo that option was available, as you note, under Tools > Options > Memory. However, with LibO that isn't even an option at present so there is no little check box to tick to enable it.

To get around this I have added a launch icon to LibO onto my panel and that opens up the LibO welcome screen with the option to open a new component or to open an existing file. It isn't ideal because at least when the OOo quick start button was available the entire OOo was loaded in the background making launching the components that much faster.

I hope that some kind developer takes a look at this issue at some point.
